Kalinowski, Pav; Lai, Jerry; Fidler, Fiona; Cumming, Geoff – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2010
Our research in statistical cognition uses both qualitative and quantitative methods. A mixed method approach makes our research more comprehensive, and provides us with new directions, unexpected insights, and alternative explanations for previously established concepts. In this paper, we review four statistical cognition studies that used mixed…

Koszalka, Tiffany A.; Wu, Chun-Ping – Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 2004
Classic research methods are ineffective in capturing the dynamic relationships among users, technology, and outcomes for technology integration research. Cognitive research attempts to eliminate environmental variability and test for recall and transferability of knowledge representations. Such approaches lead to arguably ineffective measures of…
